USA Truck Inc. announced the conversion of its Atlanta terminal to a continuous, full-service operations and support center.

The expanded facility's 24/7 operating model reflects the company's strategy for establishing predictive maintenance practices, designed to reduce long-term costs and driver down time.

USA Truck also plans to hire additional drivers to increase its presence throughout the Southeast.

Earlier this month, the company announced it had received initial delivery of 150 2014 Navistar International ProStar model tractors. The order followed the 250 new tractors and 400 new trailers put into service earlier this year.  

USA Truck is also installing advanced computing and mobile communications systems (including electronic driver logs) in its entire fleet, enabling real-time driver and vehicle information to be integrated with the company's home office and offering customers enhanced visibility into the status of their shipments.
